Dependable Trash Services

December 28th, 2019

Beginning January 1, 2020, there will be a disposal fee of $15 per mattress. The cause of the fee is from a disposal fee charged from OCRRA (Onondaga County Resource Recovery Agency).

Town Savings

December 28th, 2019

The Town of Camillus, Onondaga County and several municipalities will share a $6.4 million reward from the state for finding cost-cutting ways to share services. The state money matches what the county saved last year through several initiatives undertaken in response to the state’s mandate to look for ways to consolidate government. State lawmakers in 2017 passed legislation pushed by Gov. Cuomo to create local shared services panels among municipalities.

One of the projects is to include the towns of Camillus in the county’s Employee Benefits Association saving $437,699, the governor reported.

Under the state legislation, certified savings from the state-mandated process would be matched with state money. These funds will be set aside to mitigate future cost increases. Many thanks to Supervisor Mary Ann Coogan and County Executive Ryan McMahon for leading the charge on this.

Senior Tax Prep Assistance

December 28th, 2019

AARP will be preparing tax forms at the Camillus Senior Center on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning February . The tax prepares are available BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. To schedule an appointment, contact the
Senior Center at (315) 672-5820. Appointments will be made beginning January 2nd. No walk-ins please.
